[dm-devel] [PATCH] dm mpath: only try to load the scsi_dh module if the scsi_dh doesn't exist



There have been reports of multipath table loads hanging due to
__request_module hanging (for some unknown reason).

More often than not, the scsi_dh is already available and there is no
need to request_module().
